Why do people love Donald Trump?

How can anyone NOT be appalled by Trump⁉️

Donald Trump is entertaining and evokes the most degernerate sides of our human nature. He is greedy, lustful, boastful, venegeful and by American standards successful. Donald Trump is a carricature of all that's worst about what Freud called our Id and it is this manifestation of our shadow side, our dark side that people find so fascinating.

Donald Trump is childish and mean when he leads chants of "Lock her up! Lock her up!' and encourages people at his rallies to beat up people who object to his taunts, slurs, and put downs. It is World Wrestling Entertainment in political life and it is the same people who love to see violence, vengeance, and mayhem acted out in a sports arena who love Donald Trump.

I not only get a kick out of Donald Trump's antics but also find his fans and supporters a species of human beings who are fascinating to watch and observe.

Rather than appalled I find myself curious about what makes these people tick and why they love and support this kind of hurtful, mean, destructive, self aggrandising behavior. We all see a little of ourselves in Donald Trump whether we are consciously aware of it or not.

Marianne Williamson is right when she says that America's biggest problem is a spiritual one. The fact that a person like Donald Trump was elected to be their leader is a symptom of the degeneracy of the American people. Is it time for spiritual renewal?
